The Union Nationale fielded 121 candidates in the 1981 Quebec provincial election, none of whom were elected. The party, which had governed Quebec for most of the period from 1936 to 1970, dissolved shortly thereafter.

Some of the party's candidates have standalone biography pages; information about others may be found here.
